The HD4DP application enables data providers to collect data.
The medical and professional secret is protected at various levels and through principles such as encoding, encryption, and user-acces management. The combination of these elements guarantees so-called "end-to-end security".
During the data collection process, which is done by this application, all data is securely (= anonymized) transferred to Sciensano, with the use of e-health box:
The data provider never receives the coded identifiers
eHealth has never access to medical data or metadata
Healthdata.be never receives the original identifier, but can reconcile different entries
An overview is given in the video:
We provide more documentation of the different functions and possibilities in the different phases of data collection in the HD4DP application.
